Vancouver won with a ninth inning walk-off. This was due to nine innings of one run pitching by Paxton Schultz and Hagen Danner. Dunedin's pitching was hit around again by Tampa, but Addison Barger stayed hot. The Bisons and Fisher Cats were rained out.

Buffalo at Scranton - postponed

New Hampshire at Somerset - cancelled

Everett 1 Vancouver 2

Tampa 13 Dunedin 10

This is what I noted from yesterday's games.

Vancouver won with a walk-off. In a tied game Spencer Horwitz led off with a double, moved to third on a ground out and scored on a sac fly by Luis De Los Santos. In total the C's had four hits, Horwitz had two as did Sebastian Espino who drove in the first run.

Paxton Schultz threw six shutout innings with eight K's. With the three true outcomes up all around baseball, we have to reevaluate what a strikeout rate of nine means. Hagen Danner threw the last three innings. He allowed one hit, a double, that came around to score.

Dunedin's pitchers were hit around again. The starter, Rafael Ohashi, did OK with one run allowed in 2.2 innings. However he walked four and threw almost as many balls as strikes. The bullpen gave up the other twelve runs.

The Jays scored ten runs on seven hits and 13 walks plus three Tampa errors. These games must be a treat to watch, 19 walks in the game which took 4 hours and 22 minutes to play. Remember this league is using the automated strike zone. Addison Barger stayed hot going 2-4 with a double and two walks. Orelvis Martinez also had two hits. Steward Berroa hit a three run home run, Miguel Hiraldo drove in three runs.
